Shamshad's Group's story

Shamshad is a very supportive lady. She always remains ready to support her family in every way possible. She operates her sewing business at her home to support her family in fulfilling their basic needs. She also sells goats as her second business. She buys them from the animal market, raises them up and sells for a good profit. Besides her businesses, she is also a very good housewife and a very caring mother. She is rearing her five children very well. Her husband is a daily-wage laborer.

Shamshad has applied for a loan from the Kiva partner, Asasah, for her business of selling goats. With the loan she will buy goats to expand her business. She is hopeful that this investment will help her to make a good profit, which she will use for the education of her children. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 3rd loan application. She is a responsible client and fulfills her duties responsibly.

She lives with her family in a two-room brick house in a small city named Khanewal in Pakistan. Khanewal is famous for its agriculture industry.
